Can i protect my Folder structure form being changed.

We wish to set up a fixed folder structure that the users can access to add files etc, but we do not want them to be able to change the structure.. Is this possible??

Hey @LostSoul, it's my understanding that you're working on a team account, is that correct? Please let me know if I'm not on the right track on that! 
 
If this is happening, assuming that you've set up your folder structure under Team Folders, you should easily be able to achieve what you have in mind granting your colleagues View-only permissions on the Group accessing the top-level folder, which will automatically add them & inherit permissions to all subfolders, too. You may also have a look at this resource whenever you have a bit of free time, where Jay has included some more tips & tricks on distributing permissions on your team.
 
I hope that this points you towards the right direction & I’m always here if you’d like to discuss that in more detail. Have a great rest of your day until we talk again!
